The Houston Maritime Museum is launching a Capital Campaign for our new home located at the Turning Basin at the Port of Houston this fall.
Our New Home
Expanding the current museum and moving to the Port of Houston will allow us to better fulfill our mission, “To capture and preserve the wonder and influence of maritime history and the maritime industry with focus on the development of Houston, the Texas Gulf Coast and the State of Texas.”
Expanded Visitor Attractions
Features of the new museum include extensive exhibit halls, classrooms, meeting spaces, event spaces, research library, children’s area, museum store and a café/restaurant.
Get to Know the Area
The waterfront, five-acre site will serve as a major visitor destination as well as the point of embarkation for the MV Sam Houston Tour Boat.
While fundraising has already begun, the Capital Campaign will officially kickoff later this year. To stay updated on the latest Capital Campaign news, please bookmark BuildHMM.com and follow along on social media with #BuildHMM.The Strange Case of a Port and Its City
